Stranding is a technique that involves knitting with two or more colors of yarn within a single row. It can be a tricky and intimidating process, but Lori Ihnen walks you through, step-by-step, in First Time Stranded Knitting. The book shows you how to hold your needles and yarn properly, how to gracefully handle the yarn and how to switch colors, carrying the unused yarn across the back of your project. Tips and tricks are included along with clear photos to properly show the steps. Plus, once you’ve gotten the hang of the technique, you can try out some sample patterns to practice your skills further.
